Today, we have the visual companion to song “Hocus Pocus,” quite possibly our favorite track on the album. Find it below and, for those in area, be sure to catch him along with a ton of other artists at Chreece, a celebration of hip-hop culture in Indianapolis.

We now have a visual for the song directed by Greg Hardes & Jacob Proud taking the song to an unexpected dark stage at a strip club, although not so surprising considering their homebase of Portland has the most strip clubs in the US per capita.
